Supine to Sitting Up!

In the last few days we’ve said the words, “Go to your wedge,” more times than I can remember. In fact one time while Laelia was reaching for something she fell over and sniffed, “Lali go to ‘er wedge?” :)  The little girl has figured out we won’t help her up! I love it! And  I love those full sentences she says now!

Then today at work I got a text from Chelsea that Lali went to her wedge to sit up, then sat up right by her wedge  without using it! I wondered if Lali had used the wedge to get her hips in position or if she merely went to that spot and forgot to use it entirely.  So later this evening bound and determined to find out,  I asked her to show Grandma and Peepa this trick (the excuse I use to put a camera in her face) and she did! Here’s what I got:

She didn’t want to give me any more videos apparently. :-D

    OH MY GOSH!!! I almost started crying just watching how hard she worked and how proud she was when she sat up! I can’t imagine how hard it must be to hear people tell you all the things Laelia will supposedly never do, but by golly, if there’s anybody bound to win against all odds, it’s her! Let that video be proof whenever somebody gets you down! Hooray for Laelia!

    I was starting to wonder if you were that sick or if you didn’t believe me. I was expecting something close to a back flip from you and you were just like “oh good”. I told you :) I was hoping she would show you so you didn’t think I was crazy. Hooray!!!!!!!!! So awesome!!!!!

    Wow, wow, WOW!!! How can you ever resist that “please”? And the arm… she’s figuring out how to make other parts do what she wants. Amazing! Send videos to that PT who thought Lali didn’t have it in her! :)

    I think I would have cried over those videos had Sophie not been bouncing on my lap cheering “Look at Laelia! Look at Laelia!” What an awesome, awesome accomplishment.
